"Play hard" is one of DansUnifyingPrinciples. I used to play a *ton* of VolleyBallInDallas and I go to the MotherLodeVolleyBallTournament whenever I can manage. With three kids, it takes more planning to find time to play volleyball, but I still love to play and I manage to get out now and again. The best pick-up ball is at "lenexa rec center":http://www.ci.lenexa.ks.us/cityhall/parks/communitycenter.html on Sundays, except in the summer. Pat Venerable-Herera used to run it; Alma Garcia took over in 2004. I play at Roeland Park sometimes too... mostly with Gan and friends. <hr />**21Mar2004** the lenexa rec center crowd use the <a href="http://local.google.com/local?q=national+guard+center&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&sa=G&near=lenexa,+ks&radius=0&latlng=38953610,-94733330,38970541,-94796219">armory</a> this week. <hr />**Aug2003** <a href="http://www.opkansas.org/_Res%5CParks_&_Recreation%5CPrograms_&_Classes%5Cfall_leagues.cfm">Open Volleyball at TRCC</a>, 119th and Lowell, 6:30-10:30 fridays. <hr />**July2003** played at Quivira park after a picnic. <hr />**Feb2003** Played in a league at center middle school. In just the third game, I went up for a block and came down with a BustedFinger. <hr />**6Jan2002** went to lenexa rec for the first time in a long time. I ran into Lorenzo, who used to play VolleyBallInDallas. <hr /> "Heart of America Volleyball":http://www.hoavb.org/ I played in the **10Feb2002** tourney... with Ken and team "Stick-It". We went 4-4 in pool play and lost in the first round of the playoffs. Not great, but not bad for a bunch of guys who hadn't played together. Plus, I got to hit outside. My passing was pretty poor. I think that was the first tournament I played with glasses on. "hoa-volleyball-adults":http://groups.yahoo.com/group/hoa-volleyball-adults/ in yahoo groups.
